Describe your typical process with a couple.
I like to meet with a couple in their home before the wedding to get a feel for how they live and what their expectations are of the photography. Work out the running order of the day and any special moments to be covered and people to look out for. I like to be early on the day to catch the preparations and then go right through till after the dancing. That way I get everything. On the day I try to capture what happens other than trying to get in the way making things happen. I keep it natural. After the wedding, I usually have the images ready within three weeks and the photo book a couple of weeks after that. I will then come back to the couples home to deliver the book and have a reminisce about the day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The exchange of rings - the moment each commits to the other.

Hanging out of a third storey window to get the whole wedding party on the shot.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Smiles and umbrellas!
